A Florida mother took her three children to Disney World for a fun-filled day of activities, but was unable to get past the entrance after a closer inspection by a park worker noticed something disgusting about her. She was immediately jailed for this, but wasn’t sure why until she saw two words she had no idea were there.
Tammy Lemasters never expected “the happiest place on earth” to become her nightmare. She’s seen people stare at her with an alarming look before, but it wasn’t until she was denied entry to Disney and a room at a hotel that she realized what was going on. Now she’s threatening to pay someone if nothing is done about it.
The 42-year-old mother-of-three recently relocated to Florida and received a new license to show her residency there, which also earned her a discount at Disney and other affiliated venues. Excited to capitalize on the savings and have fun in her new state, she got some really bad news instead.
“Lemasters started noticing that people were treating her wrong,” said attorney John Phillips, who is now representing the mother, after everything she had to endure unnecessarily. “A hotel wouldn’t let her stay. [She] went to Disney World, “the happiest place on earth,” and they said, “We can’t let you in the park,” he told the Orlando Sentinel.
After getting her new driver’s license, she didn’t notice anything unusual about it until a traffic stop pointed it out, and she couldn’t believe what she found upon closer inspection. When she received her new card from the DMV, an employee asked if she wanted to become an organ donor. She said she did what should be on her driver’s license, but instead the government worker pressed the wrong button. Her card read “Sexual Predator” in bold letters in the lower right corner, which she most certainly isn’t.
“It’s so embarrassing and shouldn’t have happened,” the mother said. “They need to change.” When brought to the attention of the manager at the driver’s license office where the error occurred, he simply blamed human error and said he would train his staff better. However, that’s not good enough for Lemasters after several embarrassing incidents where it has prevented her from going about her life.
Having already hired an attorney, the mother said they will sue the state of Florida if steps aren’t taken to ensure this doesn’t happen to anyone else. Lemasters has since been re-licensed with the correct information and the DMV sent her a letter of apology for her troubles. Her condolence letter is really only worth the paper it’s printed on as this mom couldn’t get her day back at Disney and the embarrassment of being viewed as a disgusting sex offender as she stood there with her three children.
Phillips said entering false information wasn’t uncommon, as he was approached by three other people whose licenses misrepresented them as a “sexual predator.” The insult to injury when a government agency makes a mistake is that it takes forever to fix. Everyone knows how slow the DMV is and the complete lack of customer service makes it all the more annoying, especially when they make such a egregious mistake of portraying someone as a pervert.
